Today marks 5 weeks until Christmas, how crazy is that! This is the time of year where everyone begins to scramble through shops, searching for the perfect gifts for friends and family. To make it easier for you, I’ve come up with a list of top gifts for creative people. Just incase you’re buying for a photographer, designer, writer, artist, or just a general creative type.
These gifts are not just for Christmas, they could be great for any occasion.
5 Awesome Gifts for Creative People
The Unsplash book
The first idea, and the inspiration for this article comes from the team behind Unsplash. For those who don’t know, Unsplash is a photography site which houses thousands of top quality photos from people all over the world. Anyone can visit Unsplash, and use the photos for absolutely anything. There’s even some photos from me on there.
To celebrate the success of Unplash, the team have created a book – packed full of amazing, photos, stories, and inspiration. This is the perfect gift for anyone interested in photography or has a passion for design.
The book is currently in the process of being funded on Kickstarter, which means that you’re unlikely to receive it before Christmas. But it’s certainly one of the best gifts for creative people.
A nice print (or two) is a simple and always well received gift idea for a creative person. Depending on your own level of design skill, you might want to design your own. Otherwise there are a number of nice stores to purchase them online.
Etsy has an endless source of designers selling prints for cheap prices. I’ve also included the Zazzle online print store and Ugmonk for you to check out.
Pencil by FiftyThree
The iPad app ‘Paper’ is a very popular app for designers and artists. FiftyThree have designed a cool looking stylus to go with ‘Paper’ and a number of other iPad drawing apps.
Pencil’s battery lasts for about a month and you can choose from 3 colours.
Ugmonk is one of my favourite brands. Jeff Sheldon has created a number of amazing products which make perfect gifts for creative people. The Ugmonk Mini Sketchbooks are an easy and guaranteed ‘winner’ of a gift.
It’s definitely worth having a look around at the other products on the Ugmonk store as well. The link below will give you $15 off your first purchase.
If there’s one thing that most creative people have in common, it’s a love for photography. Photography accessories come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and prices, so there is something for every budget.
Camera accessories make great gifts for creative people and Photojojo is the best place to find them all. There are literally hundreds of quirky and amazing camera accessories in their store.
That was just a small selection of my favourite gifts for creative people. I hope it helps!
Until next time,
